It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity, and i have found that old adage to be untrue, because now that I live in the southeastern section of the country, I believe that it’s both the heat and the humidity; They labor together adore a pair of demons, making every day even more insufferable than the day before, however even laying inside the house all day with the windows shut and the shades drawn doesn’t help – it’s still sizzling and humid in our own residing room! It feels adore our thermostat is lying to me, because the digital readings seem a lot lower than I think they should.
I did some research online and found that the high humidity levels were making the temps guess hotter, so I ordered a dehumidifier.
It worked so well I bought a sixth dehumidifier the following week, to expand our comfort zone throughout the house. A dehumidifier is pretty small, but I didn’t want to have to move it around the house from room to room. They don’t cost a lot, so putting a dehumidifier at each end of the house was the quickest and easiest solution for the problem. I have to empty the water reservoirs in our dehumidifiers once or twice a week, which is tangible evidence of the good labor they are doing! A nice little bonus to these machines is that our indoor air quality is so much cleaner and fresher. Every time I step outside I am reminded of how brutal the weather around here can be, but at least our home climate control plan is working well.
